Private Cab from Chandigarh to Leh

Hi All,

My husband and I are visiting Leh in early June. We plan to take train from Delhi to Chandigarh then car from Chandigarh to Manali and Leh.

Please suggest improvements to itinerary below:

Day 1: train Delhi to Chandigarh

Day 2: car Chandigarh to Manali

Day 3: Manali to Sarchu

Day 4: Sarchu to Leh

Can you please recommend several cab operators from Chandigarh to Leh? If it is against policy to share names in forums, please private message me. Thank you!

Hi Cindy

So far Manali Leh road has not opened to traffic

If you want road travel than better would be flight to Srinagar. Than road travel fron Srinagar to Leh.

This route is much better for Acclimitization & lot of sight seeing onway

Manali-Leh road : open beyond Keylong now , Border Roads pushing towards the Baralacha La. The most important point on this road is NOT sleeping first night at The Vomit Hilton\Sarchu . More pointers at http://korta.nu/sleepless

Dear Anil, Manzoor, and vistet Umea, thank you ever so much for your wonderful suggestions.

I will follow your suggestion to go to Srinagar. If we book a private car is it better to do that only once we get to srinagar, or should we do it beforehand? Are there specific companies in Srinagar that can arrange for road trip to leh?
